GOLF COURSES

Muthaiga Golf Club – Peter Matkovich Design

18 holes, Par 71      
Altitude: 1,710 metres  
Opened (new course): 2004  
Distance (championship): 7,169 yards
Opened (original course): 1913

Proudly called the ‘Home of Golf’ by its elite membership, is in many ways the ultimate embodiment of Kenya’s unique marriage of ancient golf tradition and a modern 18-hole championship golf course.

The new course returned Muthaiga to prominence as the finest course with the fastest greens in East Africa.



Karen Country Club – Jean Remy Martin design

18 holes, par 72
Altitude: 1,830 metres
Opened: 1937
Distance (championship): 6,924 yards (men’s) 6,662 yards (ladies’): 5,707 yards

This stunning course occupies a special place in the heart of historic Kenya-on the site of Karen Blixen’s famous coffee estate. Lush indigenous forests, pools and wetlands bursting with birdlife, butterflies, sprays of flowers, and luminescent bougainvillea are common features.

A short par 3 over a fountain and pond will test and reward the deft, while the par 4s range from 300 to 450 metres, and all par 5s top 500 metres.



Limuru Country Club – Mr. J.A. Kinnell & Major W.D.Bacon design

18 holes, par 71
Altitude: 2,135 metres
Opened: February 1952
Distance (men’s): 6,739 yards
Distance (ladies’): 5,582 yards 71

Nestled in the foothills of the Escarpment, the course is spread out over 200 acres of broad, sweeping fairways interwoven with magnificent indigenous Africa trees and alive with the calls and iridescent colours of thousands of beautiful birds.

The signature par-5 3rd holes enjoys stunning views over the luminous tea plantations as it descends to an immaculate green, bordered by a shimmering dam and rock gardens.



Sigona Golf Club - Tom Simpson design

18 holes, par 72
Altitude: 1,980 metres
Opened: 1938
Distance (men’s): 6,890 yards
Distance (ladies’): 5,631 yards
Course rating (SSS): Men-72, Ladies-71

Sigona’s hilly Kikuyu-grass fairways are widely regarded as among the lushest, most beautiful, and most challenging in Africa. Sigona’s original course was routed around an elephants’ watering hole – the reason for the elephant’s head on its striking club logo.

The yellow-flowering wattles, podos, cape chestnuts and pines all form the beautiful environment.



Vet Lab Sports Club – Paresh Jai Design

18 Holes par 72

Established: 1924

The Vetlab Sports Club has its name from the Veterinary Laboratory built in 1910 and which was located next door to the Club.

The club is known for the lovely scenery with a large variety of threes, bushes and flowers. It is also a very challenging course where you need absolute precision to keep a good score.

The club is situated in Kabete (The Agriculture University compound) around 20 minutes’ drive from Westlands.
